The Belmond Miraflores Park showcases Lima’s grander, more sophisticated side. Whereas many of the city’s other luxury hotels have garish casinos, the Miraflores Park has the Belmond hallmark of understated elegance, in one of the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods. The hotel also sets the bar high when it comes to service. Upon check-in, expect to be greeted with a cool towel, fruit-infused water and the sweet scent of the lavish tropical flowers adorning the marble lobby. Come evening, be sure to watch the sun set over the green paths of the Malecón de la Reserva, and the crashing waves of the Pacific below.
Bed and Bath
The 81 spacious guestrooms — the smallest is nearly 500 square feet — are arranged like suites, with elegant sitting areas that offer floor-to-ceiling views (mostly of the Pacific Ocean or the lush gardens). There’s a lived-in elegance to the decor, with carved hardwood furniture softened by sky-blue sofas and buttercup curtains. The enormous bathrooms have large marble soaking tubs, walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads and granite vanities stocked with luxe Molton Brown products.
Aside from the sweeping views, one of the hotel’s most welcome perks is the food, from the lavish breakfast spreads served with a panoramic ocean vista at the rooftop Observatory restaurant to the top-shelf pisco sours in the avant garde Belo Bar. The innovative international fare served on the leafy garden terrace of the hotel’s stylish Tragaluz restaurant is also not to be missed. The luxurious Zest Spa is open until 10 p.m. most nights, with treatments incorporating indigenous products from Peru and the Amazon.
In the Area
Lima’s hottest restaurant, Central, is just down the block. You also can’t leave Lima without eating at one of Peruvian superstar chef Gaston Acurio’s restaurants; La Mar is his homage to ceviche. The historic district is just across town (about a 20-minute drive from the Belmond); housed in a sprawling 18th-century mansion with lush gardens, the Larco Museum’s collection spans nearly 3,000 years of Peruvian history and includes a titillating erotic art exhibit. In the very heart of town you’ll find the Plaza de Armas and the cathedral, plus the ghoulish catacombs beneath the Convento de San Francisco, with its Harry Potter-esque library. In Barranco, just a 10-minute ride from the hotel, students, artists and well-heeled professionals come to meet up and kick back with a cocktail at Picas, near the famous 19th-century Bridge of Sighs; then hit Ayahuasca, a sprawling multilevel lounge that offers ultrastrong cocktails and alternative pop rock.
How to Get There
Beautiful hotel with a stunning ocean view in Miraflores. The neighbourhood is amazing safe and we felt very comfortable walking around, even at night.
The rooms are gorgeous! Extremely comfortable beds and wonderful service!
Breakfast not only had a great buffet, but a stunning view!
Book yourself on the club floor for drinks, snacks and a great terrace!
Our flight from Dallas was cancelled and moved to the following day. I emailed our concierge at Belmond Miraflores, Alejandro Vanoordt, and everything was shuffled around to accommodate us and our vastly changed schedule. It was much appreciated. The hotel itself was great. Great service. Great staff. And the rooms were large. The ocean view overlooking the cliffs was lovely. The morning breakfast also had an ocean view and the food was fantastic. The downstairs bar was also enjoyed. We arrived late the first night and missed our previously planned dinner reservation. Fortunately, Tragaluz, the hotel restaurant, got us in and the food was fabulous. If you need a place to stay in Lima, this is one of the best hotels. I recommend it.
This was our first visit to Lima. The hotel is nestled in the bustling Miraflores neighborhood. The first portion of our experience was before we arrived. There was a mistake in booking the hotel and when I called to rectify the issue, the hotel attendant did everything possible to accommodate our needs. We used the hotel's car service and that turned out to be one of the best choices we made. It was incredibly easy to locate the driver at the airport. Once we arrived at the hotel, we noted the simple beauty of the lobby and the extensive use of flowers. Also, everyone was extremely courteous and helpful. We had a suite which was more than enough room and despite the fact we lost our ocean view, it was a great room and kept incredibly clean throughout our stay. Miguel at the concierge desk made sure our stay was exceptional and helped with reservations. Breakfast was pleasant in the observatory and we were able to eat outside most of the days we were there. We will definitely be returning here!
I had stayed at this hotel about 15 years ago and can vaguely remember that it had a great ocean view. This time , the view was just as nice , if not better because of beautiful sunsets and the nice surrounding park and shopping mall.
The welcome was warm, courteous and professional. Staff are polite, helpful and eager to assist. Even when a minor mistake was made with our restaurant reservation, the staff member apologised sincerely. It was an honest error- but the so many good things they do more than made up for it.
Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable . The view was of course excellent. Make sure to get an ocean facing room. The bed was comfortable and large.
Breakfast is served on the 11th floor and it’s a good spread with a nice bread pushcart , warm items and many other lovely items.
Sitting on the balcony gives you another wonderful view of the Ocean , a bit of the park and surrounding area.
The bar serves excellent cocktails and snacks - I would recommend the chicken wings and scallops.
The main restaurant is Tragaluz- semi formal , an excellent range of Peruvian and western type dishes. Food was very good, and the wine selection is good as well. Service is adequate though the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed when the crowd built up.
The murals on the wall and the main bar give the place a certain lively character.
Definitely an excellent choice to stay if you like to be by the Ocean and a quieter location.
Fabulous hotel with great service, great food, and in a good location. The lomo saltado here is AMAZING with very high quality beef!! I highly recommend staying at this hotel. The breakfast on the top floor was also nice!
